Lourdes Sanchez: Watercolor Inspiration

You may be wondering where I have been, (lately I am reading more). I have some book recommendations, if you are looking for pure fiction!

I am working on a wood panel artwork for an art benefit December 10th. The event called 11 x 11 is a fundraiser for the arts and is created by Michelle Berc of CreateFixate.

These inky watercolors by Lourdes Sanchez have been right up my alley. Watercolor is a medium that never fails to appeal to me. There is something about it’s aqueous quality that I just love.

I have abundant projects and ideas I hope to materialize over the following months, some involving watercolor.

Which one is your fave?

Room Details: Curtains and Bedding

For those of you that are following these rooms as they evolve, we have added the curtains! I love the details of both of these sets.

The white sheers are from West Elm and have gorgeous capiz shells along the trim. Above the bed is a custom linen curtain, we had sewn from vintage table linens.

These sunny pillows and coconut shell lamp are sure to cheer a girl up, even on school days!

We will be layering in another pillow later this week. Inside Mia’s room, the Circles curtains add the element of pattern and ties in the mirrored table with other silver and white objects in the space.

All the little details, including the curtain rod and rings are something to think about.

Later, today while I am on site, I’ll try to capture more of these nuances! Hope you are enjoying watching it all come together.

Weekend Redo: Bedrooms

This weekend for me was all about striking a balance between work and repose. At home, I am enjoying snoozing away in my new cotton paisley block print bedding that I found at West Elm’s Dash for Design sale! If you haven’t gone yet, you should! They have deals on all kinds of furnishings from their signature mini desks to lacquer trays.

This July, in the spirit of transformation, I plan to repaint our existing wood bed frame. Replace that functional, yet tacky bedside lamp and finish the bedroom by painting the walls and or hanging new colorful curtains. What color would you like to see this bedframe? The dresser in the room is a dark walnut but other than that could become anything really.

Over at our client’s house, the girls’ rooms¬†Metamorphosis continues with installation of a photo wall, coconut lamp, modern nightstand, and beginning layers of the bedding.

In Mia’s room we have assembled her Parson’s Desk, added simple shelving, a lacquer tray for organizing papers, and a punchy Thalya chair by Kartell.

In a day or two this brilliant lamp will be hung from the center of the lofted ceilings. In it’s current state, I think it resembles an art installation, but it’s going to be so fantastic!

This was the last quiet moment I had in Echo Park captured by Ashish.

yup, that’s me…feeling a real sense of peace.
